Just Japan Podcast 13: Being a Researcher in Japan

In Episode 13 of the Just Japan Podcast, host Kevin O’Shea sits down with Dimitri Perrin, a researcher at Rikken, a government research institute in Japan. Not only does Dimitri have an interesting career in Japan, but he is also raising a family and does many things outside of work such as running and fundraising for charity! He and his wife biked around Japan’s largest lake on one-geared mamachari bicycles to raise money for Japan’s Red Cross after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami!
